How to Make a South American Quilt

A quilt was delivered today for Andrea from R’s mom.  I forgot all about this thing.  She had asked Andrea her senior year of high school what colors she wanted and, after I suggested school colors of the university to which she’d just been accepted, Andrea scoffed “you know I’m not all into the school spirit thing” and listed her favorite colors of the moment instead.

“Jungle Green and Neon Orange!”

I wouldn’t have remembered but boy I’ll never forget now!  It’s gorgeous!

To this:

I try so hard not to laugh every time she walks into the room, but she looks like a school mascot with just the head on.
